- Make an appointment with my counselor and keep it.
- Let my inner circle know – especially my husband, just saying it helps those around us know that we are in a tender spot.
- Worship music. I love country music and listen often but I also know what music can do to me when I am vulnerable. Music is created to dance on our heart strings and can wreck already damaged emotions but worship music will heal the feels. This also applies to what I read and watch. “Be careful little eyes what you see, be careful little ears what you hear”
- Give myself grace.
- Get people to hold me accountable to my health – I did a water challenge last week and this week is no sugar (NOW THIS MIGHT PUSH ME OVER THE EDGE) and now my husband keeps throwing around dirty words like whole30.
- Get moving – go on a walk, run, kick box – get those endorphins flowing
- Be real with God. Get in the psalms and hash it out. Then get to the end of Job (Ch.38-41) where God shows Job how (insert your own adjective here) God is.
These are in no particular order so do them all.
